Request to Book

This stunning residence with pool sleeps up to 14 in four ensuite bedrooms and a tree-house suite, and is a great space for a large family holiday in the sun. Spread over 3 levels, with views of the turquoise Pacific, it’s the ultimate luxury crash-pad, with hammocks for snoozing, a pizza oven for fun family dinners, a home cinema for entertainment and an open bar for when the kids have gone to bed. Just a few minutes walk from a quiet sandy beach, spend days swimming, snorkelling or wind-surfing. The residence also comes with an English-speaking concierge, maid and cook. Trancoso, in beautiful Bahia, is a year-round destination and is particularly good October-May.

What we love

  • The large veranda running the length of the house, with sea views, seating and steps down to the garden - a perfect spot for chilling
  • The gadgets to keep the teenagers happy - a home cinema, stereo, iPod docking station and WiFi, plus a pool table
  • The bedrooms - 3 ensuites (one on a lower level) with air-conditioning and private balconies plus a further bedroom with 2 single beds and its own separate bedroom
  • The beautifully private tree-house suite, comprising an ensuite bedroom, veranda and sitting room
  • The large kidney-shaped swimming pool with infinity lip, built-in steps and a depth of 1.2 metres, ideal for lolling in the sun, getting fit or playing with the kids
  • The large garden, boasting bougainvillea-clad pergola and a separate thatched pavilion slung with hammocks perfect for an after-lunch siesta
  • The large open-plan sitting and dining area, plus the large functional kitchen - all designed to accommodate large groups
  • The wet bar, barbecue pavilion and wood-burning pizza oven - let the kids choose their own toppings for a treat
  • The exquisite design and attention to detail found throughout the property, from the hand-crafted wardrobes, to the outdoor showers, to the furnishings comprising local antiques and natural fibres, all creating an authentic Brazilian feel

Luxury on the beach

Life is lived at a relaxed pace in this former fishing village turned barefoot chic hangout, an hour and a half's flight north of Rio de Janeiro on the south Atlantic coast. The beaches are beautiful - some fringed with palm trees, others with beach bars - and when the tide goes out, reefs create perfect natural swimming pools for tots.
